• Coming off a pair of season-opening losses to three-time NCAA Division III defending national champion University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and Rhodes College, Washington U. looks for its first win of the 2012 season against Coe College on Saturday, Sept. 15. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Francis Field in St. Louis, Mo.
• A victory on Saturday would give Washington U. its first win of the 2012 season. The Bears have not started 0-3 since 1989, head coach Larry Kindbom’s first season on the Danforth Campus. The Bears started the 1989 season with three-straight losses and finished with a 4-5 record.
• The Bears have not lost three-straight games since midway through the 2011 season – #21 Wittenberg (20-17), North Park (13-10) and #12 Wabash (24-3).
• Senior quarterback Dan Burkett is 87 passing yards shy of 2,000 for his career. Burkett has completed 157-of-296 passes for 1,913 yards in his four seasons on the Danforth Campus.
• Despite winning its last Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) title in 2005, Coe College has made the playoffs four times in the last 10 seasons. Picked fifth in the IIAC Coaches’ Poll, Coe is the only team in the IIAC that remains unbeaten.
• Coe is home to some famous football alumni – Marv Levy (Coe undergraduate, later its football & basketball coach, NFL HOF) and Fred Jackson (Buffalo Bills RB, currently injured: 3,794 career rushing yards-seventh season).
• Saturday’s contest vs. Coe will be broadcast live at no cost on Bear TV. Jay Murry will provide play-by-play and Matt Hayden will do color. Live stats will also be available on the Washington University Athletics website.
